New Orleans School of Cooking Grannies Sell Cookbook on QVC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Orleans School of Cooking Grannies Sell Cookbook on QVC

New Orleans, Louisiana - May 2017

New Orleans School of Cooking chefs Anne Leonhard and Harriet Robin were guests on on QVC's In the Kitchen with David® on May 10th to sell their newly published book, Across The Table. Across the Table features a collection of personal stories and anecdotes, over 90 family recipes, vibrant food photography and lots of New Orleans charm.

"We share special recipes and techniques taught to us by our own grandmothers, mothers, aunts, friends and neighbors. Even though we are two distinctive ladies - a robust, outspoken maven and a fiery petite redhead - as native New Orleanians, we share a common bond that starts in the kitchen." (Across the Table)

Teaching weekly classes at the New Orleans School of Cooking has provided Anne and Harriet with the opportunity to share their love of New Orleans cuisine and history with thousands of visitors from around the globe. Between the two of them, they have nearly 100 years of cooking experience, and see their book as an opportunity to continue sharing their love of New Orleans cuisine.

"So now you have it! Two New Orleans ladies sharing what they know about cooking with children, grandchildren and people from all over the world. Basically, anyone who will listen to us - even in the grocery store line! Enjoy, "pass a good time", and remember to clean your plate." (Across the Table)

Anne and Harriet are no strangers to television appearances. They cook monthly on the WWLTV morning show, have appeared on the Steve Harvey Show where they were coined the "New Orleans Grannies", and in 2015, Anne won Food Network's "Clash of the Grandmas."

Across the Table will be available for presale at the New Orleans School of Cooking, located in the heart of the French Quarter at 524 St. Louis Street, the New Orleans School of Cooking satellite store in Jackson Square and online at www.nosoc.com, starting today May 11, 2017.

About the Authors

Anne and Harriet have both developed a unique cooking style over the years, full of fun and energy, mixed with their lust for sharing their love of everything New Orleans. They can now be found teaching tourists from all over the world how to cook New Orleans dishes like gumbo, jambalaya, and pralines. Invariably, after class they'll be asked "Do you have a cookbook?" The answer was always the same "No". So, one day they decided to write down all their favorites from family and friends. The hardest part was narrowing the list down to a manageable size. Their cookbook is full of stunning New Orleans style dishes "made simple," because they are both down-home simple cooks; Harriet who prepares her outstanding dishes at a fast pace, whereas Anne builds until she creates a crescendo of flavors! Regardless of their styles, their results are always outstanding and delicious!
